Since I just can’t seem to wrap my head around Dash and Judy’s all important first date today, I’m going to let it stew for a while, and hope it turns into something miraculous.
I can’t let Romantic Monday just pass me by. But love isn’t always romantic. Sometimes it’s awful, sometimes it’s hard. Sometimes it’s real world, every day and practical. But what’s important is how you keep that love alive, in a real world, every day, practical sort of way. That can ease those times when it’s hard and awful, and lead love back to romance.
So, here’s another dreadful and less than poetic poem. This time about love. Please run screaming now if you know what’s good for you.
When I went home for lunch, there was only enough chicken salad for one sandwich
So I left it for you and had something else
I know it’s stupid, because you’re 47 years old,
But I bought you this Thor Pez dispenser when I went to Wal-Mart
The electric blanky you gave me, that’s just big enough for my side of the bed
I will always treasure
Because I get so cold, and you don’t
It’s the most thoughtful Christmas gift I ever got
Argyle even! You know me so well, my love
You watch Once Upon A Time
and Project Runway with me
You poor, long-suffering darling
You’ve made our house a home
Because you know how to fix EVERYTHING!
My hero with dimples and a tool belt
You let me follow my whims
And support my every desire
You don’t even roll your eyes at me
At least you don’t let me see it
You share the chores
and play with the dog
and make me laugh every day
When you said “I do” did you realize
exactly what you were doing?
Thank you my love, for doing it anyway
Ohmygod! It’s awful. I know it, but I meant every word. Thank you all for enduring it.
